Liviu Antonesei, Andrei Cornea, Daniel Vighi and others signed a letter to Prime Minister Câțu requesting that Irina Cajal be removed from the position of Undersecretary of State in the Ministry of Culture for participating in an anti-Semitic demonstration organized by the Romanian Academy.
Right-wing intellectuals accuse great Jews of anti-Semitism
Irina Cajal is the daughter of Nicolae Cajal, former president of the Jewish community in Romania.
The so-called anti-Semitic demonstration actually paid tribute to the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin. The discoverer was, as we know, Nicolae Paulescu, a great scientist, but also a notorious anti-Semite. The Romanian Academy did not pay homage to the anti-Semitic opinions of the scientist Paulescu, of course.
The authors of the letter are there: towards the current leadership of the Academy. But they have no one to write letters for her dismissal, so they invented the diversion by which they addressed the prime minister for the sanctioning of Irina Cajal, who would have guaranteed Paulescu’s delusional anti-Semitism.
Anti-Semitism – A sociological wound to be bandaged!
In short, the authors of the letter do not have the courage to scold the Romanian Academy for celebrating a great scientist (in fact, a great scientific discovery), but suggest that the participation of some Jews in this festival would have been unavoidable because of that scientist’s anti-Semitism.
So, everything would have been fine with that festivity if Irina Cajal and the current president of the Romanian Jewish community had not participated in it.
Is that so? Did these representatives of the Jews in Romania guarantee Nicolae Paulescu’s anti-Semitism? As much as Andrei Cornea guarantees the practices of the slave master Plato when he translates and comments on the Platonic work.
Then? What kind of progressivism will have worked in Andrei Cornea’s erudite gourd when he decided to accuse Irina Cajal that he should not have gone to that festivity and that he should not have evoked the considerations of her father there, a doctor with significant merits, about insulin? Would it have been more appropriate if Irina Cajal made those evocations in the Plato edition coordinated by Andrei Cornea?
The decision of the signatories of that letter to defend Semitism and when it is not attacked, this gesture is astonishing as long as it is made against the free decision of some personalities of the Jews in Romania to recognize the importance of discovering insulin. What do these progressives want? That insulin be given with a pamphlet about the anti-Semitic sins of its discoverer? Not sure that’s what they want. If that were the case, they would have attached to their letter to the prime minister confessions about their own sins: that he had participated in a symposium on Nazism, that he had sworn too often to the gypsies in Bucharest, that he had sung too much. fire on verses from Doina lui Eminescu… It is understood that these confessions would have been made out of care not to be appointed in the Câțu Government.
